CALVERT CITY, Ky. - A 16-year-old's death in early 2013 is prompting one city to install a new traffic signal.

Allie Kirtley died in May after a crash in Calvert City, Kentucky.

She was leaving a restaurant at the busy intersection of fast food chains and gas stations on the stretch of road that intersects with I-24.

She collided with another vehicle and died.

Crews will soon break ground to install a traffic light.  Reduced speed limit signs have already been installed along that same stretch of highway.
